SPIRIT LAKE - The Cherokee Braves split a Lakes Conference wrestling double dual here last week, blasting Le Mars 54-15, and falling to traditional Lakes power Spirit Lake Park 58-24.

Cherokee featured two twin-pin winners in Zac Andrson at 152 pounds, and Miah Back at 285. Luke Zeimen also was a double winner for the Braves, winning by fall and by decision in his two outings.

Rick Weaver at 145, and Gabe Conley at 182 also had pin wins for Cherokee.

"We had mixed emotions on the night," said Cherokee first-year coach Austin Todd. "We came ready to wrestle, picking up the win over Le Mars. However, after wrestling traditionally tough Spirit Lake, we still have much work to do to get where we want to be. Miah Back had a good night, picking up two pins for the team both in the first period."
